    Hi I need advice on how I can make the handle side of the door frame plumb/square without disturbing the newly plastered wall on the inside of the room as I’ve painted the walls and glued the new architrave? I have access to the frame on other side but as I’m putting jams behind it’s just twisting it 😞it measures 30 inches at the top and 30 & 3/4 at the bottom. Im finding it hard to get a door to fit and don’t really want to buy a bigger door and have to trim it down. Can I add more lining to make it smaller maybe? or is there a way I can do it from the one side to push the bottom inward 3/4 of an inch? All advice will be very much appreciated

    I have recently moved into a council house, I don’t have a single door that closes properly and most don’t have handles. I really need to replace the bedroom doors, however the frames are metal with the hinges welded on. As I don’t own the house I really don’t want to go to the expense of replacing all the frames, is it possible to hang new doors onto the existing frame?
